    Okay, here the Issue I play a online game and my Ms is usually 30-40Ms, and as of now im getting

    lag spikes that can last from 2 seconds - 5 minutes ( 100-400ms) i'm positive its not anything

    running the background on my computer. I have restarted my router many times when i do that my

    connection will drop from G speed of 54mbps to 2-5.5mbps i have call my internet provider (TW)

    time warner to reset the connection didn't help. my router is a
    Wireless-N Broadband

    RouterWRT160Nv3 Linksys. I haven't bought a N-adapter to take the full speed of the router as of yet. so im using the default one build into the laptop.

    any clues to what i need to do to stay at a 54mbps after restarting router and stop the horrible lag spikes?

    as of now though i am at 54mbps but still getting lag spikes

    also if there any tips on how i should set-up my advance routing for my router for wireless that would help =)

    if there more info needed. ask me to post them thank you.

    It might be wireless interference if the line has been tested ok.

    Install Xirrus http://www.xirrus.com/library/wifitools.php on the laptop with the laag issue and run this software from where you use the laptop mostly in the home! e.g. bedroom/upstairs..?

    Then post the status/home screen to show us how the wifi is setup and neighbours wifi in your area.

    Tell us the name of your wifi network so we can compare it with others?

    Also can you try a wired connection from the laptop to one of ports 1 to 4 on the back of the Linksys? Just as a test to see if a wired connection does not produce the LAAG problem?
